The oldest section of Copenhagen inner city is often referred to as "Middelalderbyen" (The Medieval City). However, the most distinctive district of Copenhagen is Frederiksstaden developed during the reign of Frederick V. It has Amalienborg Palace at its centre and is dominated by the dome of the Marble Church and several elegant 18th century mansions. The old inner city of Copenhagen includes the small island of Slotsholmen with Christiansborg Palace and Christianshavn. Around the historical city centre lies a band of congenial residential bouroughs (Vesterbro, Inner Nørrebro, Inner Østerbro as you can see in Copenhagen neighborhoods map) dating mainly from late 19th century. They were built outside the old ramparts of the city when the city was finally allowed to expand beyond this barrier. Sometimes referred to as "the City of Spires", Copenhagen is known for its horizontal skyline, only broken by spires at churches and castles.

Brimming with galleries, tattoo studios, chic restaurants, underground bars and music venues, Vesterbro has earned the title of the hippest district in Copenhagen as its shown in Copenhagen neighborhoods map. For a long time, it was known as a working-class neighbourhood, but over the years it became the city skid row. Kødbyen is located within Vesterbro, just a few minutes from Copenhagen Central Station, but it is worth mentioning for its distinct style. Former slaughterhouses have been renovated and turned into restaurants, bars and art studios in the area. One of the oldest districts in Copenhagen Indre By (inner city), the Latin Quarter name stems from the Latin language that was still spoken at the nearby university in the neighbourhood early days. This colourful section of the old town, which is tucked away just off the tourist track of the Strøget pedestrian street, is Copenhagen Bohemian quarter, a diverse community that is a gathering place for artistic types.

It is probably the most touristed neighbourhood in Copenhagen, but Nyhavn townhouses as you can see in Copenhagen neighborhoods map, with their distinctive colourful façades, are so beautiful that it is still well worth a visit, and the historic tall ships lining the harbour add to the endearing maritime atmosphere. Just across the lakes from Copenhagen city centre lies lively Nørrebro. Its main street of Nørrebrogade is a buzzing spot, and along it lies Assistens Cemetery, a tranquil oasis that also happens to be the burial place of Hans Christian Andersen, alongside other famous Danes. The man-made island of Christianshavn was created in the 1600s as a naval and merchant district. A working-class neighbourhood for a large part of the 20th century, it is now a desirable area of Copenhagen. Its picturesque canal, brightly painted houses and narrow alleyways make the neighbourhood one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the city.

Copenhagen Municipality is an administrative unit which covers the central part of the actual city of Copenhagen. It is a fairly small part of the actual city which falls within the municipality both because it covers a confined area and because the enclave of Frederiksberg is an independent municipality. Since a reform in 2006–08, Copenhagen is divided into 10 official districts (Danish: Bydele) as its shown in Copenhagen districts map.

Official districts as you can see in Copenhagen districts map: Indre By, Osterbro, Nørrebro, Vesterbro/Kongens Enghave, Valby, Vanløse, Brønshøj-Husum, Bispebjerg, Amager Øst, Amager Vest. The suffix -bro in the names Østerbro, Nørrebro, Vesterbro and Amagerbro should not be confused with the Danish word for bridge, which is also 'bro'. The term is thought to be an abbreviation or short form of the Danish word brolagt meaning paved referring to the roads paved with cobblestones leading to the city former gates. Today the Frederiksberg enclave, whilst not part of the Copenhagen municipality (and so administratively independent), is considered to be part of the city of Copenhagen. Frederiksberg became an enclave in 1901 when the former districts of Vanløse and Valby were incorporated to Copenhagen municipality. Since 1902 no further incorporations has been made to the municipality.

The highest population density is no longer found in the city centre ("Indre by", which means Inner town) due to office buildings, department stores and council buildings, etc. The highest population density is instead found in the districts closest to the city centre, where there is a density of 15,000 inhabitants per km2. For example at the entire Nørrebro district, the parts of the Østerbro district between the big park Fælledparken and the large harbour areas, the east and north Frederiksberg as its mentioned in Copenhagen districts map. Also the Vesterbro part of the official Vesterbro-Kongens Enghave district and small Christianshavn across the harbour has a high population density. In other words, the highest population density whithin Copenhagen is found in the areas surrounding the city centre. The lowest population density in the municipality exists in a part of the Amager Vest district. At the western coast of the island of Amager a large area was embanked from the shallow strait of Kalveboderne in the 1930s.
